Cousins camping at lake arrowhead 2015

Hello friends! We just got back from celebrating my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary in Lake Arrowhead. It was busy and crazy and fun. Now we’re welcoming cousins and preparing for zoo camp this week! I’ve got pics to share of our trip and some hellos for a brand new week.

***Hello Monday is where I greet the new week with an open heart and a fresh perspective. It’s a new beginning–and there’s so much to be thankful for! Join me by leaving your own hellos in the comments section or linking up a hello monday post there!***
